Review: Lush 'No drought" Dry Shampoo




First of all I LOVE how this smells. It smells like lemon candy. OMG soooooo good. But that's all I really like about this. There are a few problems with No Drought. And although I love the smell it's not enough to make me want to buy it EVER again. 

First of all it's white...like white white. I have thick dark brown/black hair and it leaves a grey cast in my hair...not very attractive. TIP: Do not apply the dry shampoo to your normal part in your hair. Instead section off your hair, if you have thick hair like mine section it off a couple of times, and apply it to the roots. By applying it to other sections of your hair you can kind of hide the ugliness of the white cast. 

Second if you've got thick hair applying this in one section, not enough. I actually apply it in three sections and it still doesn't absorb much oil. How I use this is by applying it to my roots, rubbing it into my scalp and about a centimetre into my hair with my fingers then leaving it in for a couple of minutes and brushing it out. But honestly I don't feel like it does anything. My hair doesn't feel less oily it just feels heavy. 

You get sooo much product with this and it'll last you a very long time. However, I still wouldn't recommend this for anyone with dark hair. There are plenty of dry shampoos on the market that are more effective and don't leave a grey cast, so personally for me I would go quality over quantity.

Cons
- White cast
- Ineffective
- Too much product 
Note: Lush provides an expiry date (approximately a year from purchase). Even if you were to use No Drought every second day no one would be able to finish a bottle. Therefore maybe Lush should give the option of a smaller bottle at a lower price point. However I wouldn't get rid of the product just because of the expiry. Unless something was wrong with it, the consistency changed or something along those lines.

Pros
- SCENT
- Value for money

Rating: 2/5

Where and how much: Lush - $13.95

First off the obvious how cute is the packaging? The colours are soooo cute and pretty. Love it!!!!!
I really like the baby lips, it's moisturising, goes on really smooth and looks glossy when you apply it. They smell okay (the menthol one smells like vicks) and I find them to be longer lasting than normal lip balms given your not eating or drinking (they last for about 1-2 hours). The menthol flavour has that tingling feeling which I enjoy but if you don…

Review: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Image: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Claims: "Extremely fast drying top coat. Protects your nail polish against chipping"

How long would you expect a "quick dry" top coat to dry, 60 seconds maybe 2 minutes? Well don't expect too much from this top coat. Every time I've used this top coat I've had problems with my nail polish smudging or sheet lines when I wake up. 

The top coat does dry fairly quickly however the nail polish remains soft and smudges if your not careful. I tried it a few times but the last time I tried it I left it for an hour and a half to fully set and without doing anything that would ruin the polish before going to sleep but when I woke up my nail polish had sheet marks. All I can say is disappointing. 

Yes it is a cheap product but from essence I expected a lot better. I've used a few essence products but this was the WORST. 

In terms of protection from chipping I don't believe it makes much of a different. My test for this was rimm…
